im with him. if a vehicle doesnt move its hard to justify paying much more than a $1000 for it. You could get all the components for about $1500 so dont pay anymore than that.

f/r are worth about 1000-1200$, depending on who wants it (456s, so certain people will pay higher to keep from having to regear)
trans and t-case are worth 200ish...rest is scrap basically, so another 2-300$ there.

if you pay any much more than 1200$, you are cutting yourself short. Also, keep in mind it was a diesel, so its not as easy to just swap in a motor and run a little bit of electronics to get a gasser running.

If your not interested in the truck body, pull the axles and Turbo 400, part out the rest. 208 T case isn't worth much.

4.56 gears and a rear detroit locker in the 14 bolt is a good find.

Forget the rest. Don't overpay.
